Fight Spam!

Using mailto Encoder will format your e-mail address in a way that is not readable by an e-mail extractor or search engine. I am setting it up, as my e-mail address is starting to get more & more spam. (I am going to have to start using SpamCop too…)

I got spammed horribly with my old address,(had to quit using it cause of so much spam) but since I’ve had my new one (and used mailto encoder) I get none whatsoever.
Thank heavens, cause I hate spam!

you can also substitute %40 for the @ symbol in a normal mailto URL and it basically does the same trick as mailto encoder, just much much simpler if you want to type it in on the fly.

What’s the %40 trick you’re talking about. I just launched a dating site and I’m already getting unwanted mail. My box which is supposed be filled with online date requests is packed with online pharmacy email etc… Any hints on filtering?
